The communication before the trip was good and the owners offered to arrange pick from the airport for a reasonable price which we didn’t need.
On arrival the lady who meet us was nice and pleasant and showed us where everything was, I asked about the pool and she explained we could use the yachting clubs pool right opposite but as it was the start of the new season they didn’t have pass’s but within a couple of hours a nice lady knocked with the pass’s which was an added bonus really as the club and pool was lovely.
The location of the penthouse is fantastic close to everything, bars restaurants shops, supermarkets, the fairground, boat trips from the harbour, beaches. etc
On the left hand side as you leave the penthouse you will find a little beach past the fairground and on the right hand side of the penthouse about a 10-15 minute walk you will come to another nice beach. There is also a bus interchange around the corner if you want to go to a couple of places such as la’mata, torreta’s, habaneras shopping mall. You can also get the market bus on a Friday there which will take you the very popular market.
Within working distance next to the yachting club there is a tourist information centre which if needed will give you all the information you would require.
The views from the penthouse are breathtaking and it’s got everything that you would need on a self catering holiday.
The penthouse is also equipped with a lot of gadgets such as a massaging bed and a hot tub, everything is remote control from the tv to the blinds and shutters so if your turning the lights on you might end up closing the blinds and there is a lot of lights and blinds lol, but you get to know what switches are for what.
The entertainment systems are a bit hard to use and if you’re not a bit of a geek you might struggle to use them unless shown which we wasn’t but this wasn’t a problem as we figured out what was what. There are instructions on how to use the smaller tv which has English and sky tv but I would definitely recommend that you ask how to use the system.
One of the armchairs looked as if it’s had its day but was very comfortable with the footrest out and the lock on the door entering the bathroom was broken so when the air-con comes on in certain rooms the draft blows the door wide open but an easy fix is to jam it with a piece of cardboard, but don’t let that put you off as the penthouse is lovely.
All in all we had a lovely stay, would I stay here again? Too right I would, the Penthouse was fantastic with everything that you need, the location and views are fantastic, the communication between the owners and myself was fantastic and I would just like to thank them for a having us and making our holiday a lovely memorable one. Thank you. I would highly recommend the Penthouse – Elisa to anyone.
The location is amazing, overlooking the gorgeous marina and walkway, the apartment is within walking distance to everything you need and want in torrevieja, including fabulous restaurants on your doorstep, lots of cafes and supermarkets for an evening on the gorgeous balcony. The view is to die for! All you will need in the apartment and more, very well equipped. Facilities in apartment are first class, you will not be disappointed. Nathalie and Nacira are always on hand should you need any assistance. They were both very helpful and friendly on on arrival.
Flat had strong sewage smell from disfunctional jakoutsi from day one. 30% refund requested. Friends could not be invited in for the same reason and we tried to spend as much time as possible outside the flat ...in fresh air. This flat should not have been placed on the market as it stands today. It is in dire need of repair, with first priority on repairing jakutsi, shower, washingmachine, sun protection in window and markise on balcony. The wooden floor is also due for a thorough upgrade, in particular in the bathroom around the toilett (unhygienic).
Lovely spacious apartment with everything you could possibly need. Close to all amenities. Wonderful views. Met by a lovely lady who was available to contact if any problems. Would certainly recommend.
Stayed twice in this original appartment. Loved it both times. Best location, near the beach, shops and Nightlife. Were met both times by professional people who shower us how everything worked.
